    Good that they here seals and birds, also the aquarium is beautiful. Too bad there is no real North Sea sharks. Price can I find on the high side.

    Educational and entertaining, but the lasting animals not back can deserve better. They make their suffering to apply to their counterparts in the wild. Acceptable, but their basins are far from fresh. That makes it pathetic. Food is not recommended but informative very fun for young and old

    We have a nice morning spent in ecomare. For the children very educational but not to make you a whole day to entertain. With a small three hours have you seen. Too bad there's not a whole lot seals were but actually also a good sign for these special animals. The people are friendly and tell wonderful stories about the whale. You can eat there fine

    Nice, fun for kids and adults, you can spend one to two hours here. The restaurant offers only light meals like sandwiches, hot dogs and soup. Seals, birds and sea aquarium are fun to watch.

    What is ecomare? It will not tell you in Dutch web site. This is a small marine education center for kids. Most of the sea animals are samples only. It shows you how Waddenzee forms in North Holland (site 1)and shows evolution of sea creatures. Site 2 shows Dutch people bulldozing the coast of Texel. There is an underground aquarium on site 3 but the fishes are a few and general type. A few seals are living on site 4 which is open area. Site 5 is a walk in Duinpark which I did not do because a walk in Texel beach (20km long) and national park will be sufficient. Site 6 is a whale hall with plastic models. The insect hall is very tiny and next to exit to site 4(I almost missed).

    It's fun to look at all the animals and fish, an amazing experience. There could be a bit more interactive things.

    Not that much to see but still amazing! Seals a too cute. The bus doesn't stop right next to it but down the road to the right - missed mine.
